“Hunting You” is available now. Recorded and mixed at Fantom studio, Tampere in the summer 2004. Our target was to take a huge step forward. That’s why everything excluding cellos were recorded at Fantom. Cellos were recorded at Kuhmo-Talo which is definitely one of the best concert halls in Finland. Making everything professionally we didn’t leave any room for mistakes. “Hunting You” is a very versatile ep. You will find powerful action parts, attitude riffs, smooth melodies, acoustic guitar, fast songs and a little bit slower songs also. “Hunting You” is really the one you should have.
Beat Your Attitude
“Beat Your Attitude” was released in the autumn 2003. BYA was mixed at Fantom, recorded mostly in Kuhmo and Tornio. At Fantom we recorded only drums. The first track Upstream won demo competition on Finnish radio channel YleX, and was played several times there. BYA received a lot of good feedback although it is full of experiments. This promo is almost sold out but we are going to have some more. While waiting feel free to download mp3’s.
Charisma was formed in the autumn 2002 by Heikki and Olli. From the very beginning the musical direction was clear. Early spring 2003 Heikki’s brother Mikko joined the band. Soon we also found Teemu. Altti joined the band in the autumn 2003 just before the first Charisma gig ever. All members had already long band history before Charisma. Olli and Heikki made one full-length album with Ceremonial Embrace. The year was 2000.
